The University of Greenwich celebrated their annual Green Impact awards recently. But they didn’t just congratulate themselves on the achievements of the year behind them. They used it as a platform to expand Green Impact across the entire community – taking student-led sustainability into a huge, diverse range of organisations.

This year, Green Impact will be rolled out across:

  • Royal Museums Greenwich;
  • Old Royal Naval College;
  • Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance;
  • Hadlow College;
  • Widehorizons outdoor education charity.

It’s a really exciting mix of locations, with lots of new opportunities and challenges for embedding sustainability into lifestyles and workplaces right across Greenwich.

While staff and teams were rewarded for their greening actions, these new organisations had the opportunity to be inspired by seeing what amazing achievements can be made across a year of Green Impact.

Over the year ahead, these organisations will come together for student-led workshops, collaborating and sharing good practice, and sharing how their experiences of Green Impact in different contexts can drive innovation and inspiration across all participants.

"Royal Museums Greenwich has a good track record of developing environmentally friendly initiatives”, says senior exhibitions project manager Megan Thomas. “We are, however, always looking for new ways to be more sustainable”.

“Green Impact is a way for us to engage with our staff and the public to ensure that the incredible buildings and collections we care for are available for future generations."

Thanks to the team at Greenwich Sustainability Hub, it’s been the most exciting year for sustainability in Greenwich ever, and we’re so thrilled to see them building on their momentum by taking Green Impact off campus, into such a diverse range of organisations.

This time next year, we’ll have a showcase what can be achieved when an entire community works collaboratively to improve their sustainability credentials, and amplify their positive impact.
